The Tony Award winning rock musical, RENT, deals with a group of aspiring artists living in New York City’s East Village in the late 1980’s; trying to survive and celebrate life under the shadow of poverty and the AIDS epidemic. A modern version of Puccini’s opera “La Bohème”, the story follows Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, and his friends, as they face the issues of everyday life in the artistic lower class, struggling to pay the rent while searching for love and happiness. Written by the talented young lyricist/musician Jonathan Larson, RENT was an instant Broadway sensation; winning a Pulitzer Prize in 1996, as well as, a Tony Award for Best Musical.

The Vienna’s English Theatre Youth Ensemble was started in 2011 to serve as a practical training ground for young actors and actors in training interested in performing in English.
